A TRAGEDY OF RUSSIA,
The Serf Owner's Son Who Was Wedded to the Daughter of a Serf. / A Tyrant Who Whipped His Beau tiful Daughter-in-Law to Death. Revenge Came Swiftly and at the Mands of a Party Headed by the Young Widower. When Alexander II, in the year 1861 passed his celebrated decree abolishing serfdom, there was considerable diversity of opinion as to the effect which mancialpa tion would have on the material iliterests of Russian land owners and on the country in general, says a St. Petersburg corres spendent. The peasants, using their lib erty and their new privileges to their own detriment, drank more, worked less, and indulged in politics to an extent which fomented a steady and fast increasing din. satisfaction with the existing form of gov ernment. Nevertheless, any violent or rad lcal change in the present institutions, bad asethey may be, cannot but be followed by mlsohievous consequences; and nihilism, which has been growing apace during the past thirty years, will find a fresh excuse for its annihilating theories. I shall never forget a story told me by a Russian noble, and which may serve to emphasize what the moajike may look for ward to should serfdom once more be re established. It occurred a few years before liberty had been granted to Czar Alexan der's subjects by that most just and geoner one of monarchs, and found its cause in the unlimited power which the "barines" or serf owners wielded over their peasants. The scene of the tragedy was;in a village not many miles distant from Moscow, and owned by a nobleman whom we will call here-the family being still in existence and well known all over Europe-Andre Lou kitch. He was a cruel, unjust, hard-hearted man, and his peasants stood in mortal dread of him. His immorality had be come a by-word in the whole province, and his house was shunned by all decent peo ple. The consequence of all this was that the inhabitants of the village of Lou kitcha had become some of the wildest and most embittered ereatures in the czar's dominions. The master's exactions had reduced his serfs to the direst of pov erty, the "isbas" were bare of all but abso lute neoessaries, the fields were neglected, the cattle lean, all the wretched peasants leaner yet. They lived like wolves and de voured each other likewise. One winter, when the harvest had been even worse than in the preceding years, the serfs decided to go in a body and implore Andre Loukitoh, their master, to grant them time in the payment of their ground rent. They had but little hope of success, still they plucked up courage and presented themselves like a pack of frightened sheep before the ty rant. With a sarcastic smile the "barine" listened to their impassioned supplications, then turning to them lie said coldly: "You can not ray what you justly owe me, say you. Well, I will give you a week to find the money I need. If at the end of that time you have not acquitted your debt I shall, if necessary, sell every one of your daughters, in order to obtain my due." Broken hearted and despairing the un fortunate monjiks filed out of the luxuri ous apartment and with revenge in their souls sought their own cheerless firesides. At the end of the week most of girls, who had been the only remaining enurays of their miserable homes, were sold by the "ba;ine" and sent away to the government of Olonetz, far up in the north, at the bit terest season of a merciless winter. The arbitrary act came near causing a revolt among the moujiks. but this was rapidly quenched by Andre Lonkitah, who caused the ringleadors to receive publicly 200 lashes of the knout as a warning to all who tried to oppose his authority. In the meanwhile the "barine's" eldest son, a handsome boy of 22, returned from a col lege in Moscow, where he had been edu cated, and took up his abode on his fath er's estate. Nicholas Andreiteh in no way resembled his fathe-, and as soon as he realized the prevailing state of affairs his every effort was directed toward softening and lightening the burdens of his future vassals. -lies interference, however, far from help ing them, only increased their sorry plight and brought down on his own head the malice of Andre Loukitch. To cap matters the young man fell violently in love with the beautiful daughter of one of his father's peasants, and too honest to take advantage of the love she had given him in return secretly married her. For three months the young couple managed to conceal this fact from the "barine," but one day they were betrayed by Andre Loukitch's private sec retary,who was his ame damnee. On the fol lowing Sunday the "barine," during the absence of his son, summoned the entire Pooulation of the village, and before the eyes of all present he had the beautiful wife of his only son whipped to death. When he came back the younn man almost went insane with grief and horror, and leav inc his father's house took refuge in the forest which lay to the north of Loukitcha. Twentr.four hours later a party of men headed by NicholsA Andreitch himself, en tered the "barine's" house at the dead of night and murdered him in his sleep, set ting the house on dfire afterward to obliter ate all araces of their crime. The governor of the province, who was a just ruan, when :cquainted with this terrible affair, hushed it up and purposelyc'losed his eyes to the role played by the son anrd the peasants of the victim, whose death was subsoQently ascribed to accident.

BETTY CARROL L. * The Story of a Geetie Heart, by Myry Delano. i ETTY WAS RAISED AT CARROLL Manor, Maryland. She was four years old when Col. Carroll sold her to Mr. Blohards, a rich land owner across the mountain. Betty was black and high-stepdping, A fina saddle horse, and drove single or don ble. Mr. Riobhards paid $100 for her lady ship and gave her all the luxuries of a good home. Gates and bars guarded her well day and night. Nevertheless, one summer day Betty was gone. The family looked east and looked west, traveled to the north and the south, but Betty was not to be heard from. At last Mr. Itichards reached Carroll Manor. There in the big green pasture of the stock farm stood Betty Carroll tossing her head, arching her glossy nook, looking very proud and handsome. A spry little colt kicked up his heels in her face, and 1 with a motherly air she coquetted over him, and said plainly to her new master: "Of Sourse I must come home with my first y'baby I" She made this same visit four times aft a erward, The homes were forty miles apart. Each time she was obliged to cross the river y dividing them twice, and had to climb a path up the steep sides of the mountain and down to the plain. Railroads were built after she was sold, and the tracks often crossed the old trail; but Bettyewam the river, trotted over the tracks with never a mishap, always getting to her master's house in safety. Her children were all born at home. Carroll Manor was the only spot she felt to be a suitable birthplace, Her colts were fine young horses and Betty was growing old. Mr. Richards ? drove her carefully and kindly, but her proudest, most ambitious days were over, a One day when the mountains were red a and gold and the October fields brown and yellow, Betty once more walked in at the big gate of the old homestead. She stood a by the kitchen porch and waited until her o sweet-faced mistress and the young people - all flocked about her with caresses and lumps of sugar, and led her to the spring where she used to drink in her young, merry days. Then she marched off alone - to the best box stall in the big barn, and there she stayed. No coaxing, no arguing could get her out. She insisted upon that place, and her old master said, "if Betty wants that stall she shall have it. She always did have more t brains than a man, and now she shall be treated accordingly," and Mr. Rtiohards agreed. She died in three weeks. The long jour ney home and old ago had made her weak. She was found dead in the stall. Copyright. A NAPOLEON RELIC. - .demente of the Great Emperor Found in a Curiosity Shop. In a queer little store, heaped with all sorts of curiosities, a Boston Herald man a day or two ago discovered among the old pewter mugs and time-stained prints a heap of medals from the scattered collec tion of some enthusiast. There were sev eral bearing the head of her most gracious Britannic rpajesty, with different inscrip tions upon the reverse. Upon one wps a sphinx and the words, "Egypt. 1885." An other had been the'reward of some poor fel low who endured the hardships of the trenches before Sebastopol, when the allies held the Russian bear in check during that terrible winter. A Turkish medal refer ring to the ame campaign was also among the lot. But the most interesting of all and, of course, most valuable-was a cross of the Legion of Htonor of the great Napoleon. Those are very rare, although those distributed by the head of the third empire with such a lavish hand are rather common. But the one in hand, hanging from the worn crim son ribbon, had been presented to some brave or learned man by the great leader himself. The white enamel had been slightly chipped from the ends of the five pointed croes, but the jewel was remarkably well preserved. The center was of gold and bore the head of the emperor, with a green wreath of oak and laurel surround ing the medallion. On the reverse and corresponding to the latter were the tri colors crossed, with the words "Honneur et Patrie" encircling them. So rare are these crosses that it is thought the one now in Boston is the sole specimen in this country. There are several collectors in this city who prize such treasures, so it will probably remain heore in some private cabinet. Seven Years Without a .lirthday. "Seven years without a birthday" was the record of a Scottish clergyman who died nearly thirty yeals ago. A writer in St. Nicholas says the statement puzzled most of those who heard it. At the present there can be very few, if there are any, who have this tale to tell of themselves, for one who can tell it must have been born on the "29th of February at least ninety-six years ago. But a singular line of missing dates is now soon to return; and indeed there are no doubt some readers of this page who will have only one birthday to celebrate for nearly twelve years to come. The solution of tile puzzle is to be found in the fact, which does not appear to be very widely known, that the year 1800 was not a leap year and 1900 will not be.-Boston Trans script..
